Jaguar has added an I-Pace Black model to the I-Pace line-up. The latest addition is said to heighten the visual appeal of the all-electric performance SUV.
The I-Pace Black benefits from an enhanced specification which includes a panoramic roof, privacy glass and a Black Pack comprising gloss black finish applied to the door mirror caps as well as the grille, grille surround, side window surrounds and rear badges. The I-Pace Black rides on 20-inch five-spoke wheels with a gloss black finish. The I-Pace Black is available in the full range of colours, including Aruba and Farallon Pearl black premium metallic paints.
Inside, the I-Pace Black interior features ebony leather sports seats and gloss black trim finishers complemented by an ebony headliner. The I-Pace Black features the Pivi Pro infotainment system, which has an embedded SIM for music streaming and a Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. The I-Pace can connect two phones simultaneously, and an optional wireless device charging pad beneath the ‘floating’ centre console features a signal booster to improve network reception and Wi-Fi.
The ClearSight digital rear-view mirror gives the driver an unobstructed view of the road behind, even with rear-seat passengers or a fully loaded luggage compartment. It uses a wide-angle, rear-facing camera linked to a screen behind the mirror: a switch allows the driver to choose between the standard view or the camera feed.
The I-Pace Black has two Jaguar-designed electric motors at each axle, producing combined performance of 294kW power and 696Nm of torque.
The Jaguar I-Pace Black is scheduled for South African introduction in the third quarter of 2021 with pricing to be announced closer to the time.
